    Exclamation bulletin is not released for security patch

    hi,
    I have executed the command apt list --upgradable | grep security to retrieve all the security patches available from ubuntu.
    I retrieved a list of the patches applicable to my machine.
    but the issue is that i am not able to find security bulletins in usn.ubuntu.com for some of the patches that I retrieved from command.

    I use bulletins often to check what type of bug that i am fixing .
    if there is no security bulletien released for a patch then how can we treat it as security patch.

    I checked these repos and found out that so many patches available here are not having bulletien
    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/bionic-security/
    http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/di...onic-security/

    Even though if we think that ubuntu product bulletin for only critical security patches then there should not be bulletins for non critical patches.

    Please let me know why some patches are not having bulletins.

    As far as I know or can tell security notices are only for affected packages and not for any required dependencies.
